For cost-oriented development and production.


optimize product costs from the very start of the development process

With FACTON EPC Design Costing, companies can optimize their product costs from the very start of the development process. This is particularly important considering that decisions made during development determine up to 80 percent of the subsequent production costs. By using different capability maturity models, the costs up to start of production can be determined with ever increasing accuracy.

With FACTON EPC Design Costing, development engineers can easily determine the impact of their decisions, for example, in relation to materials, on the overall costs of a project. If the system includes target costs, designers are encouraged to explore potential cost savings at this early stage.

Material and production costs as well as general product costs can be calculated on the basis of various capability maturity models. During the development process, capability maturity models serve a concrete purpose: costs determined in rough estimates or based on binding supplier offers using FACTON's Capability Maturity Models and output in a range of ways. The FACTON Capability Maturity Model is patent-protected.

Other indispensable tools of the FACTON EPC software include integrated machine rate calculation functions and options to evaluate various alternative technical solutions.
